Nepal Charter likely to be promulgated through majoritarian custom

Telegraph Nepal

The Baburam led government’s coalition partners, Unified Maoists’ Party and Unified Democratic Madhesi Alliance, have come to terms over promulgating constitution through majoritarian practice rather than holding consensus between parties represented in the defunct constituent assembly.

The coalition partners held a meeting at the prime ministers’ residence on Monday April 30, 2012, wherein they unanimously concluded that with Nepali Congress and United Marxist Leninist parties not showing signs of any flexibility, the constitutional issues could be settled through majoritarian rehearsal.

Madhendra Yadav of Tarai Madhesh Loktantrik Party who was present at the meeting confirmed the decision.

“We will wait until Tuesday”, added Yadav.

The parties viewed that since NC and UML were obstructing the process of consensus by demanding change in government, such a fresh decision had to be taken.

“There is the conspiracy against promulgating the constitution”, Yadav claimed and added, “We will once again request NC and UML to join the present government. If they deny our request we will have no option that to promulgate the constitution on our own.”

Present at the meeting were Chairman Pushpa Kamal Dahal, Prime Minister Baburam, Vice Chairman Narayan Kaji Shrestha and Secretary Posta Bahadur Bogati of Unified Maoists Party.

Deputy Prime Minister Bijaya Kumar Gacchedhar, Tarai Mahdesh Loktantik Party (TMLP) Chairman Mahanta Thakur, Madhesi Janaadhikar Forum-Ganatantrik Chairman Raj JKishor Yadav, TMLP leader and Minister Hridayesh Tripathi, Sadvawna Party Chairman and Minister Rajendra Mahato and Irrigation Minister Mahendra Yadav were also present.
